The Story Behind the Story

The public is invited to hear Freethought Society president Margaret Downey on Monday, November 15, 2010 at 7:00 PM in the Community Room of the Norristown Library (1001 Powell Street, Norristown, Pennsylvania).

Downey’s presentation “The Story Behind the Story” will highlight her journey from being baptized Catholic to becoming an outspoken and proud leader in the nontheist community. The presentation is a continuation of the essay “My ‘Bye Bull’ Story” which was originally published in 50 Voices of Disbelief: Why We Are Atheists.

This presentation will include a PowerPoint slide show and essay creation literature.

Downey is a national atheist speaker. Her presentations receive rave reviews. Below is commentary from people who have attended this presentation:

“You delivered a great presentation to the Freethinkers of Colorado Springs last week! I am still getting phone calls and emails from members and "drop-ins" complimenting me on your presentation and thanking me for bringing you to town. Thanks again for your tireless devotion to freethought and for sharing your time with us.”

Becky Hale, Freethinkers of Colorado Springs

“Such a pleasure meeting you and hearing you speak! Glad I made the trip to Wilmington, North Carolina!”

How wonderful to have met you, dear lady. You are an incredible speaker and I was riveted to everything you said. You have obviously found your calling. Again, thanks so very much for your time last night.”
